We need your help to define the values of Bristol Mental Health

Bristol Mental Health is approaching its first birthday, and to mark that milestone, we are looking for volunteers to help us define in simple terms what our values are.

When Bristol Mental Health was created, we decided on four key principles that would guide the work we do. Those principles are that we focus on recovery and wellbeing, that we respect equalities and diversity, that we are psychologically informed in all of the work we do, and that we co-produce everything we do with service users, carers and staff.

Those principles can be hard to understand in plain English, and so we would like to re-write them using words everyone can understand. Those words will be used whenever we talk to service users, carers, staff and anyone else with an interest in Bristol Mental Health.

If you have experience using mental health services and think you could help, or you are interested in giving your thoughts about how we can make the values behind Bristol Mental Health easier to understand, we would love to hear from you.

There will be three meetings with Bristol Mental Health staff between September and November to complete this project, and we are particularly interested in hearing from anyone who hasn't been involved in a project with us before. This is your chance to have your say, get involved and see a change. There is a small reimbursement available for your time.

If you are interested in joining the team or would like to know more, please contact Nicola Corrigan, Bristol Mental Health Project Coordinator at Nicola.corrigan@nhs.net or contact the team at awp.bmhsystemleadership@nhs.net or on 0117 3546200.
